Catherine Gamblin

Before my divorce, I had drawn a few self-portraits. Divorce was a transition that I didn’t know how to move through but I knew I needed to engage with my artwork. Every day, I painted a self-portrait and then I wrote the story kicking about in my head on the back of the panel. It was a process of unfolding and releasing, as one story spilled out another would come to the surface with the next painting. The words and the paintings became the mechanism to move through that new territory.
I have continued to use the self-portrait to tell my story. Every portrait reflects a time and place in my life. The process mines my unspoken, buried and unconscious inner life.
